Malaga resides on the famed Costa del Sol, on the south coast of Spain. It is a beautiful and historic town which is noted for Moorish architecture, fine eating and great beaches. The best way to see the Costa del Sol properly is with car rental in Malaga, which can be booked online and collected at the city's busy airport.
Malaga International Airport is a major gateway to the Spanish south, in particular to the Costal del Sol. Fast trains also serve the area, although flights are typically cheap and numerous. The city is just a few minutes drive from the airport. You can get about Malaga on foot, but having a car is a plus as there are some fabulous drives nearby.
The airport is the perfect place to pick up a car, represented as it is by some of the biggest names in the business. Be sure to compare car hire online before you reserve an Avis, Europa, National or Hertz vehicle. Once you get the keys, you can head to Malaga or straight along the coast to any of the nearby resorts, including Marbella.
A car is indispensible for scouring the coast, but leave your vehicle at the hotel while checking out Malaga's sites as driving in the town is tough. See the Alcazaba, the Roman Theatre, Malaga Cathedral and the Picasso Museum on foot or by bicycle. Outside the town the roads of the Costa del Sol are good, with a highway running all the way to Gibraltar.
Most people head straight along the coastal road to Torremolinos, Benalmadena or Fuengirola on arrival. Marbella is a little farther along this route, while in the other direction is a quieter coast. With car hire in Malaga, you can also drive to Granada to see the Alhambra palace if you have time.
Malaga is renowned for having Spain's best weather, with something like 300 sunny days per year. It is warm year-round, meaning you can visit at any time. Average daily temperatures from June to September are in the high 20s (°C) and the mercury rarely drops below 20°C at night. People drive into the mountains to escape the heat.
